I have a set of proteins IDs which are coming from the same organism (it does not actually matter) lets assume in both cases . either they are from the same organism or they are different. But the important thing is that they are all unregulated for cancer.

A small set of them are shown below

I want to know how to find a motif across all these IDs? (there are many websites to find motifs) but I am not sure which steps to take to get a common (if there is any) for all these bad boys

You can try Meme package ( )

Have you explored InterPro among the many websites you referred to in the OP? You may be able to find the common motifs among those IDs or amino acid sequences from there.

If you have enough sequences you could try to build a profile HMM and discover signatures specific for this phenotypic group... they did so for example for Anti Microbial Resistance related genes (RESFAM).
